Praxhub invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting with Dr Chris Schneider and Dr Anita Muñoz.
Activity ID 228360
This activity aims to build general practitioner confidence in screening and identification of liver disease and cirrhosis. It will provide a framework for accurate test and clinical sign interpretation and structure for management of liver disease from mild through to decompensated liver disease states.
This activity will also outline the role general practitioners can play in the co-management of patients with more severe liver disease via active collaboration with gastroenterologist colleagues.
1. Outline the definition of chronic liver disease and cirrhosis;
2. Describe the diagnostic criteria of cirrhosis via an accurate understanding of investigations and clinical signs used in the assessment of liver disorders;
3. List the complications and sequelae associated with cirrhosis and cite the signs, symptoms and investigations used to identify them;
4. Explain the lifestyle, medication, procedural and surgical management of cirrhosis complications, and the role general practitioners play in that management;
5. Detail the management of a patient with decompensated liver disease in the general practice setting, the role of gastroenterologists, and criteria for admission/hospital-based care
